Supported OpenCart Versions:
================
All v1.5.x versions

What does it do:
================
Adds a validation check during registration or checkout to validate United States (USA) Addresses using the UPS Address Validation API.
When a user enters his information and clicks the continue button, the address is sent to UPS and validated against the USPS Address Verification.
If the address is a match, it will continue successfully with no alert.
If the address doesn't match, it will return suggestions
If the address is way off, it will report the error reason

Requirements:
==============
* You will need to have the vQmod engine installed (http://vQmod.com)
* A free UPS Developer account to authenticate the use of their API
You can get that here: https://www.ups.com/upsdeveloperkit?loc=en_AR
You will need your UPS userid, password, and developer access key

Main features:
==============
* Simple vQmod script plug and play
* Works with any US based billing or shipping address
* Works with all registration and guest checkout processes. Anywhere an address is entered.

Ah, great! This kind of feature is super helpful!

1. Will it work with APO/FPO/DPO addresses too? (some are rather complex)

2. Does the UPS verification cover everything that any USPS verification would?

3. Does the UPS dev account allow unlimited live lookups?

4. If a non-US address is used, does it just skip any validation attempt? (guess so)

Thanks :)

1. Any USA-50 USPS address. APO/FPO probably not as they likely change often as are often temporary depending on where the war is. Tho I've not tested

2. Yes, UPS actually uses the USPS service in the backend. So it's really like using UPS as a proxy to USPS. In the end it all apparently goes to the same place.

3. Yep. Its the same account as your normal UPS rate lookup. Basically anytime you use one of their APIs you use this developer account. Its free and simple to setup.

4. Yes. It only works for US and has code to just skip the check if the country is not US

Re APO/FPO, deal with lots of those here. Technically, an APO/FPO address is a "US" address so when you ship something to Saudi Arabia via APO/FPO you put the country as US, not Saudi.

Would be super interested to hear how this mod handles APO/FPO

Does it skip APO/FPO addresses for instance?

Thanks

I'm well aware of how APO/FPO works.
UPS uses USPS's validation system but it's US-50 only
It wouldn't be worth it for USPS to validate an APO address
UPS clarifies it all here:
http://www.ups.com/worldshiphelp/WS14/E ... _Popup.htm
Address Validation and Classification Tool – This tool:

Validates all US 50 addresses. It does not validate any other addresses, including APO, FPO, and DPO Ship To addresses.

Classifies all US 50 and Canada addresses as either residential or commercial. It does not classify any other addresses, including APO, FPO, and DPO Ship To addresses.

Nothing I can do about it.

Does this differentiate commercial from residential addresses and return the appropriate rate?

Thanks

No. It only validates that the city/state/zip/country are valid
